The U.S. Naval War College (NWC) recently opened its Institute for Future Warfare Studies (IFWS). The Institute is a new research and study department of the school aimed at understanding how armed conflict may evolve in the future and how the United States can better prepare for it. IFWS will be taking a long-range look at the warfare needs of the country. For more information on the NWC, visit the U.S. Naval War College website.
